Punk’s Backyard Grill — Bay Weekly’s Best of the Bay award for Best Bang-for-Your-Buck — ends its four-year run at Westfield Annapolis Mall. The independent, creative-concept restaurant received an eviction notice last week after failing to reach settlement on rent negotiations, owner Dave McCabe told Bay Weekly.
The young owners hope to stay local and try again. Fingers crossed that their barbeque, lamb burgers and craft beer reappear in the near future.
